Obituary for Janice M. Sjoblom

September 19, 1945 - March 24, 2018
Goffstown, New Hampshire | Age 72


It is with great sadness that the family of Janice Marie Sjoblom announce her passing on Saturday, March 24, 2018 following a period of declining health related to late stage kidney failure. She passed peacefully at Elliot Hospital with her children and brother, Paul at her side.
Born in Boston, Massachusetts on September 19, 1945 she was the daughter of Alphonsus Sampson and Agnes Heffernan Sampson. They immigrated from Newfoundland, her father in 1927 followed by her mother in the 1930s. She was very proud of her hard working parents. Her father was a deep sea fisherman and her mother was a homemaker while also working outside the home.
Janice attended schools in Dorchester, Massachusetts and graduated in1967 from Catherine LaLaboure school of Nursing.
Her family members include Maribeth Luby of Goffstown, NH, William Sjoblom of Dover, NH and Mishelle Sjoblom Brown and husband, Larry of Raymond, NH and a brother, Paul Sampson and his wife, Ruth of Ogunquit, Me. She leaves three grandchildren, Connor and his companion, Evelyn of San Diego, CA, Kiernan and wife, Erica of Goffstown, NH, Kerigan of Goffstown, and a great granddaughter, Violetta of San Diego,CA and several nieces and nephews.
Janice will always be remembered for her big caring heart, her sense of humor and those humorous stories that had everyone in stitches. She loved making cards for any occasion and often remembered friends with her latest craft creation. She loved her children fiercely and created a scrapbook of their birth and beyond for each one of them.
She began her nursing career when she and her family moved to Armstrong, Iowa. This was a happy time for Janice. She often related many happy stories from that time. The family then moved to NH where she began working at Catholic Medical Center and ultimately worked 25 years at Elliot Hospital Labor and Delivery before retiring in 2007.
She loved her profession and through her 40 years of nursing cared for many mothers and babies. She mentored many nurses new to the specialty of Maternity nursing leading to the saying, "What would Janice do?"
She will be greatly missed at the Dino breakfasts where retired or soon to be retired nurse friends meet monthly and refer to themselves, only in jest, as dinosaurs.
Cremation has taken place and according to her wishes, there are to be no formal services.
